Write protected drive should be detected and giving a drive letter by you computer, You can sometimes even open the drive and use it content, play movies or music from the same write protected drive,

The drive simple becomes read only, this means you can only read the content on the drive,

1. YOU CANT COPY FILE FROM THE DRIVE
2. YOU CANT  COPY FILES TO DRIVE
3 YOU CANT FORMAT IT, ( the disk management console cant format it as well)

If you try to do any of the above, you should get  " The disk is write-protected" just like the error message you see above the main topic,

IF THIS IS YOUR ISSUE THEN THE SECOND METHOD IS QUIET POPULAR AND WORKS ON MANY TYPES OF DRIVES... AND IF THAT'S NOT THE CASE OF YOUR DRIVE, THEN IT MUST BE COMPLETELY DEAD .

You can also check device manager to see if your drive is showing up there, use the method below to access device manager

Here's How:

   Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.

   Click on the System and Security link.

   Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on Device Manager and then proceed

   In the System and Security window, click on the Device Manager link located under the System heading.

   You can now use Device Manager to update device drivers, view the system resources that a hardware device is using, etc.
   
   Now herd to the universal serial bus controllers at the very end of the list , click the small arrow near it and see if you drive is located there........ If not its not there , try using your friend pc , if you still cant find it , then throw the drive away Shocked
